Desperate Teen Drives Car With Gas Pedal Stuck at 120 MPH

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

As you’re rolling down the highway, one of the things that you just seem to expect out of your car is that you will always be in control of how fast it’s going. Should you lose that ability, well, it could call for quite a terrifying scene just like the one that this young man experienced, it certainly was one that left him in a state of catastrophe. As this driver accelerated down the highway in his Hyundai, he would soon experience this phenomenon of the gas pedal getting stuck to the floor, leaving the car to accelerate wide open to 120mph where we presume it was limited.

It’s quite a scary sight to watch from the police dash cam footage as they try and figure out a way to safely get this car to slow down to allow the driver to be able to get out without being harmed, however, as it turns out, the entire thing would end with the car veering off the road and rolling over multiple times. Luckily, though, the driver would end up being alright after the incident. It’s pretty crazy to picture exactly what that feels like and imagine yourself behind the wheel while on the phone with a police operator, frantically trying to figure out how to slow down.

If you follow along in the video below, you’ll be able to watch the whole thing in addition to Hyundai’s response to the matter which seems to discredit the idea that it was a legitimate failure with the vehicle. The teen and his family have retained legal council moving forward and it looks like this one is shaping up to be quite a battle in the courtroom. Hopefully, both parties are able to find a solution and figure out how to make sure something like this doesn’t happen in the future.
